We’ll admit, we’re starting to feel a little boy cries wolf with these snow storm announcements (like, it’s not our fault the first snow storm of the year didn’t quite happen!) but don’t shoot the messenger–we’re not the ones forecasting the snow, just the ones relaying the info!
With that being said, a powerful winter storm is “likely” to bring snow to NYC Monday night, January 15th, into Tuesday.
According to the National Weather Service, a cold front from the Arctic is on track to pass through NYC late Sunday, sending temperatures down into the high 20s. Temperatures on Monday are expected to stay in the 30s, but the setting sun will “likely” bring with it some snow.
The forecast reads a 30% chance of snow after 1am on Monday night, with a low around 28ºF. And though the temperature will climb 6º to reach a high of 34ºF by Tuesday, the chance of snow will increase to 60%.
As of now it’s too early to determine how much snow NYC is expected to get, and the forecast is still developing.
Though considering it’s been nearly two years since NYC saw significant snowfall we have a feeling some New Yorkers will be sleeping with a spoon under their pillows.
The good news is if we do happen to get some snow, new technology has been unveiled which modernizes and enhances snow cleanup operations in NYC.
Beyond the snow, NYC will also find itself under more than one weather hazard, including a Wind Advisory in effect tonight, Friday, January 12 from 10pm through Saturday, January 13th at 6am and a Coastal Flood Advisory in effect from Saturday, January 13th at 7am through 2pm.
